Job hopping has been around for as long as I have been an adult and most likely before then. This is where you are changing jobs often in a short period of time. Most of the time it is moving from one company to another and at times switching between different roles within the same organization.
The people that I have met that are “job hopping” are looking for more money or better benefits. Though people may be seeking new challenges or opportunities for growth and development. And sadly, some may job-hop due to dissatisfaction with their current role or organization.
With any and all decisions there are pros and cons. Job hopping is no different. The pros/positives for frequent job changes can offer the opportunity to gain new skills and experiences, grow your network, and increase one’s earning potential. The cons/negatives may be viewed by some employers who see it as a sign that you may not be there long term. Possibly viewed as disloyal or a lack of commitment.
If you are thinking about job hopping, it is important to weigh the pros and cons before you make the change. And also be honest during interviews about why you made job changes and/or have gaps in your working career.
